If you missed the last Western Skies and THIS SLIDE SHOW of images by the great Pueblo photographer John Suhay, we highly recommend you check it out. We were so taken with Suhay’s images that we made our way to Pueblo over Labor Day weekend and braved the heat, the turkey legs, and the smell of tar and maure to see for ourselves the human spectacle that was one of his favorite shooting grounds: The State Fair.

Music in this slide show is “Nostalgia” by Ocelote Roja:
